that was the situation that the character steven was in. he was in a place he didn't want to be. he was far from people he wanted to be close to. he was not in his territory. that's how i felt writing by myself, far from home, not wanting to do it everyday from the time i got up to the time i got drunk but i did. and the second half was written all in a month. and it worked for this book. i can't say it might work for every other book it probably wouldn't work for any other book. i started this book in third person and thought for sure as a young man's voice in first person. i went in third person and i was 5 pages in and said, this doesn't sound right or read right, something's wrong. i went back because i learned from my first book, you have to think about voice and where it's coming from. i went back and put it in first person and realized it started to work. what i did was put it in the journal entries and it became what i should have known from the beginning because a began my colleges career as a film major wanting to make films not knowing i wanted to tell stories on the page and not on the scre

and gentleman, i would like to begin today by telling you about an american named chris stevens. chris was born in a town called grass valley, california, the son of a lawyer and a musician. as a young man, chris joined the peace corps, and taught english in morocco. and he came to love and respect the people of north africa and the middle east. he would carry that commitment throughout his life. as a diplomat, he worked from egypt to syria, from saudi arabia to libya. he was known for walking the streets of the cities where he worked -- tasting the local food, meeting as many people as he could, speaking arabic, listening with a broad smile. chris went to benghazi in the early days of the libyan revolution, arriving on a cargo ship. as america's representative, he helped the libyan people as they coped with violent conflict, cared for the wounded, and crafted a vision for the future in which the rights of all libyans would be respected. and after the revolution, he supported the birth of a new democracy, as libyans held elections, and built new institutions, and began to move forward after dec
chris stevens himself why governor huckabee says this is escalating fast. when democrats want to know the chain of evens here, this goes beyond a political thing. >>governor huckabee: it does and it should. this is not about the politics of this election, this is about the integrity of the white house and whether or not we are going to stand by and allow our government to openly lie to us about why did chris stevens die? why did three other americans die with him? what did we know? when did we know it? why do we continue to blame a 13 minute youtube video when it was over didn't this was not a spontaneous mob. that was the official story that came from the white house and the state department. >>neil: what do you think might have been the reason for not calling it a terrorist attack or getting this stuff out about cables and communications? where is the political downfall or risk in just calling a spade a spade? >>governor huckabee: it is hard for me to understand. i am guessing. it is inexplicable why you would not go out and say, look this was a terrorist attack. it is september 11t
by sexism, racism, and patriarchy. in 1985, "the color purple" was adapted into a film directed by steven spielberg and starring whoopi goldberg, danny glover, and oprah winfrey. in this clip, two of the main characters have a tense exchange: a strong, independent woman named sofia tells long abused celie that she's struggled all her life and will let anyone beat her down. >> all my life i had to fight. i had to fight my daddy. i had to fight my uncles. i had to fight my brothers. girl, child a save in a family mens.f i love harpo, god knows i do, but i kill him dead before i let him touch -- >> is that a footprint question >> no, sir. no, sir. >> do you want a dead son-in- law, miss celie was recce keep advising him like you do. >> as the novel is based -- we are joined by the renowned author alice walker to further discuss the legacy. we will also speak about other writings, social and political activism in support of the palestinians and about the coming presidential election. alice walker, welcome to "democracy now!" it is great to be with you. yesterday your before a crowd of about 1
demint have requested any diplomatic cables that might have come from embassy chris stevens. what are you hoping to learn, senator from those cables? >> first of all, it was myself and the senator from tennessee. >> sorry. first of all, cnn uncovered the diary of craig stevens at the scene. the diary said that craig stevens wrote he was in dang ener and on al qaeda's hit list and i cannot believe they wouldn't have sent cables to inform them of the danger and i think that is what happened. i think the state department should be forth right and know what communications they had. and if the united states state department and the country knew in advance of the attack that the ambassador felt like he was in danger of his death or imminent depiez from allocate that sending appalling message top the ambassadors representing america. >> you requested them. can you subpoena the items? >>. >> the committee can move forward and we talked to leadership of the committee. if they claim executive privilege and denies it, senator corcoran and i will pursue it. we think the american people, congress of t

cnn's reporting, but it was found in ambassador steven's diary and believed that he was an al qaeda terror hitless. there was a question about whether he communicated that to his state department. as one would assume he would have. you just have to believe that the ambassador is afraid for his life and believes he is on a hitless and there was no discussion without with this bosses. now they want to see communication between mr. stevens and the state department prior to his murder and if there is a communication that shows the state department and the 9/11 anniversary, have he is an adequately protected, he is on the ground and trying to target the consulate, might that not have some political ramifications? >> the political ramifications will come from the voters. congress, republican leaders, outspoken conservatives who are trying to politicize all this, including mitt romney, it has backfired. this is the proper role of congress to investigate this and it should be done dispassionately. it will not be concluded by the election. megyn: i will give you the final word, ed. >> all th
.s. diplomatic mission in benghazi which killed ambassador stevens and three other americans grew out of a spontaneous demonstration against an anti-muslim video. the white house later reversed course and said it was a premeditated terrorist attack. david plouffe tried to clear up its inconsistency yesterday on "meet the press." >> information was being provided real time. obviously you're going to know more two weeks after an event and a week after an event and as ambassador rice -- that was the information from the intelligence community, provided for congress. the reason, obviously, we now have stipulated this is a terrorist attack is that came from the intelligence agencies. >> plouffe's comments after the director of national sbem generals released a mea culpa two days earlier saying it was the fault of the intelligence community and not the white house acknowledging its assessment was based on preliminary and evolving evidence. that explanation wasn't good enough for peter king, the top republican on the house homeland security committee who called for the resignation of u.n. am

. steven's story, i asked myself questions. a lot of writers do that that's usually how i begin. what did he do? who did he meet when he got off the train? who was this man servant? what was his life about? it all began with the seeds and the particular questions, as simple as that. although, then, i had to answer them. what i had done is i usual low don't work with an out line. a lot of writers do they will out line what will happen and sometimes they have to because like if you are writing a mystery you need to write out the plot. i write about characters the characters drive the story. when that hatched i sat down and said, what happens is, a, he arrived and gets off the train what's going to happen. >> i know z, he would get on the train and leave at the evented book. i didn't know the alphabet in between. i was nervous and i took one step at a time very japanese like. i began to study and read everything i could find on the japanese culture. the incredible thing was not having everything that went into it and it still became a quiet book. there is a tsunami. there's tv and lep easie
, governor glen stevens expressed concerns about the effects of austerity programs in europe and slower growth in china, which is australia's major iron ore importer. he said the country's labor market has softened somewhat and that its growth outlook for next year has become a little weaker. >>> the u.s. federal reserve chief says he'll keep pumping money into the economy. chairman ben bernanke says this round of quantitative easing will continue until he sees an improvement in the job situation. >> we would continue securities purchases and employ other policy tools until the outlook for the job market improves substantially in a context of price stability. >> bernanke said the country's economy is improving but not fast enough to reduce unemployment. fed officials decided last month on another round of quantitative easing. it involves purchases of additional mortgage-backed securities at a rate of $40 billion a month. >>> managers at mitsubishi motors's subsidiaries say things are getting back to normal. maruti suzuki's sales are on the rise nearly three months after a riot shut down
follow up. not at all the way to run an investigation. >> u.s. embassy chris steven and three of his staff died in the attack. now, republicans are outraged at conflicting information coming from the white house. the attack was first linked to the anti-islamic film and now the white house is calling it a terrorist attack. but sources say investigators knew it was a terrorist attack all along. remember cnn obtained ambassador stevens' journal and found that he was worried about an attack. >> i think the fact that they are trying to blame it on not a terrorist attack comes right to the heart of the fact that this is a president that took nato aund the united states into an offensive action, into libya, without a clear stated policies. >> western told something consistent with what the administration was saying publicly. it got out of hand and there republican fortunate consequences, doesn't make sense if you just look at common sense earthquake the fact th-- common the fact it was 9/11, it was a highly sophisticated attack. you get into the evidence it doesn't add up. >> joining us is
. >>> joining us now is steven engler. i want to bring up first the sterling, because we've seena just a little bit of movement in that trade today after what's been fairly stable trade for the currency of late, this on the back of some of the uk services number showing some weakening out there among corporations. do you think this was a reason to sell today? >> well, i think sterling is a very troubled currency. i mean, you have to understand that it's been trading very close wli the euro in between the euro and the dollar. it's a very weak economy after years of low interest rates, after quantitative easing, an exchange range that's depreciated a lot over the last three or four years relative to everyone else. and the fact that the economy is so weak right now, i think is a very negative signal for the market. and for investors with respect to sterling. it will do well against the dollar if the euro goes up, but on its own i think it's going to underperform. >> i want to take a look at the euro. about a tenth of a percent. it doesn't seem to be struggling too much. the services number was bet
the attack that killed ambassador stevens and three other americans. for example, they say that ambassador stevens used to jog almost daily, frequently with his security detail. but that the -- according to their sources they say, a pro-gadhafi facebook website posted a stacked photo of stevens and also a threat against him. so he stopped temporarily stopped for about a week. and then he went back again. here's what congressman daryl issa tells cnn. >> all indications are the ambassador was not reckless and took the advice always of his security forces including sometimes when they said meetings needed to be canceled. so i think this is a failure of intelligence, a failure of security and a failure of judgment. but not of the now-deceased ambassador. >> and, wolf, there are other incidents in fact we've been reporting on them all along that they note. one was an assailant blowing a hole in the security perimeter at the north gate of the benghazi mission tworks rocket propelled grenade rounds were fired at the benghazi office of the red cross. and finally the most serious probably was other
in our name. we're against the bloodshed. we're against what you did to ambassador stevens and for the first time there's a real debate in the arab world and moderates are speaking up. they're not shying away from it and so aggressive about it. >> that's encouraging. because that is the point that freedman went on to make in the column, he cited op-eds from the region advocating of no violence and pushing back what the extreme tactics. >> we need to understand that who killed ambassador stevens were not the mobs. it was a deliberate attack of some group that is linked with al qaeda and that was a very planned, well organized and carried attack. i mean, you don't go to a demonstration with rpg-7 and with heavy weaponry. they were very well organized and they orchestrated the whole thing around the mobs but has nothing to do with the move vi, actually. >> that's clear and unfortunately it's not been the position of the administration thus far. >> all right. >> i think they played with that. >> rula, thank you for joining us. >>> up next, heading west to ohio and mitt romney i
distinguished ambassador chris stevens. is there a cover-up going on here? senator ron johnson sounds off. and folks, one more time, don't forget, free market capitalism is the best path to prosperity. lower those tax breaks and get rid of those deductions. it can work, i've seen it work in 1986. it'll work again. two years ago, the people of bp made a commitment to the gulf. and every day since, we've worked hard to keep it. bp has paid over twenty-three billion dollars to help people and businesses who were affected, and to cover cleanup costs. today, the beaches and gulf are open for everyone to enjoy -- and many areas are reporting their best tourism seasons in years. we've shared what we've learned with governments and across the industry so we can all produce energy more safely. i want you to know, there's another commitment bp takes just as seriously: our commitment to america. bp supports nearly two-hundred-fifty thousand jobs in communities across the country. we hired three thousand people just last year. bp invests more in america than in any other country. in fact, over the la
ought to be doing is not turning the tragedy of chris stevens' death -- this means something to us. chris stevens worked on our committee. he worked for dick lugar. he was a pearson fellow. he was a terrific ambassador representing our country. he cared about libya. he was committed to libya. and what are the republicans doing? all they can do is see the politics in this. they can't see how are we going to make sure that libya continues down the road to democracy and that those 30,000 libyans who stormed the militia headquarters and stole the weapons, are backed up over the next days in efforts that will help them make libya the libya we all want it to be. that's the question here. but all the republicans can do or see is politics. >> speaking of -- >> all they can see is exploiting it. >> i know you don't have much more time. i don't want to interrupt you. but speaking of politics, mitt romney has accused the president of throwing israel under the bus. now we've seen a very different timeline from israel and the united states from netanyahu. netanyahu says within months iran will
attack on ambassador christopher stevens. last night stewart went to town. >> so the administration's story was anti-muslim video on youtube touched off a massive protest on vend to spread quickly to 27 other places. seems implausible, but two days later, they had an explanation for that, two. >> our current assessment is that what happened in benghazi was, in fact, initially a spontaneous reaction to what had just transpired hours before in cairo. almost a copy cat of the demonstrations against our facility in cairo which were prompted, of course, by the video. >> copy cats. [ laughter ] libya wasn't the ring. it was the ring 2. [ laughter ] five days after the attack, the white house was still sticking to the video story. on the eighth day, the director of national counter terrorism center went in front of congress with a slightly different assessment. >> i would say yes, they were killed in the course of a terrorist attack on our embassy. >> of course, he's going to say it was a terrorist attack. he runs the counterterrorism center. a cynic would argue the president has been unwi
of ambassador chris stevens in libya and three of his diplomatic colleagues. he also made two important points, that americans obviously want to show great religious tolerance for the views of others, and onand wanted to dissociate the united states from that hateful video that insulted the prophet of islam. he said that there are important rights of free speech under the first amendment and we have to protect those rights, and if the government a press free-speech, it makes the world a less free place. he also had a message for iran, that while we want to negotiate through diplomacy if possible, time is not unlimited. that was a warning to the iranian government, which has been obstreperous and very difficult to deal with. i think it was a very important speech the president gave in new york. host: how about mitt romney? can you assess from what you have heard and hear him write these past few months? is there a romney doctrine on foreign policy? how would you encapsulate it? guest: i don't know if there is a romney doctrine yet. governor romney is a very smart, successful person. my guess is
. the murder of ambassador chris stevens was a despicable act of terrorism, but the right response is to finish the work that chris stevens gave his life to. that is with the vast majority of libyans want to do. if we saw that so inspiring last weekend as they took to the streets, refusing to allow extremists to hijack their chance for democracy. the arabs rain has brought progress in egypt where they have a certain civilian control over the military. where a elections have brought new governments to power and in morocco where there is a new institution and a prime minister appointed on the basis of a popular vote for the first time. even further, somalia has taken the first step forward by electing a new president. there has been progress and none of it would have come about without people standing up last year and demanding change or without this united nations having the courage to respond to their cries. second, there is the argument that the removal of dictators has somehow started to unleash a new wave of violence, extremism, and instability. some argue that in a volatile region, only an

[ ♪ "jeopardy" theme ♪ ] >> stephanie: with republicans everywhere wondering what happened to the campaign, people offer a simple explanation. it is candidate himself. politico has talked to dozens of republicans about this topic many raising massive amount of money to support it. few would talk to discuss their candidate appraisals of romney. you have to know the room and he doesn't know the room. republican who donated to romney and wants him to win. he's missing the normal guy gene. that's evident. look at his painful references as athletics as sport or his call for referees to return to the nfl playing fields. it is not how factory workers in ohio talk. who said that? >> ann romney. >> stephanie: another good guess
, memorialized ambassador stevens in a speech to the united nations general assembly. a speech in which the president did not say the words assassination, murder, or terrorism in relation to the ambassador's death. the president is once again blamed the terrorist strike against our consulates and the murders of four americans on a low-budget amateurish, anti-islam, almost 14-minute-long youtube video that had been on line for months before the attack. >> in every country there are those who find different religious beliefs threatening. that is what we saw play out in the last two weeks. the crude and disgusting video that sparked outrage throughout the muslim world. lou: the president did brave the assault on citizenry and blasted a run for propping up the regime is, supporting terrorism, and for refusing to prove that their nuclear ambitions are peaceful. >> just as it restrains the rights of its own people the iranian government continues to prop up the dictator in damascus and supports terrorist groups abroad. time and again it has failed to take the up today to demonstrate that its
stevens' family, sean smith, glen doherty and tyrone woods who died, brave american foreign service officers and former military folks who were doing our bidding in libya as americans. that's not a partisan issue. >> jennifer: absolutely. totally agree with you on that. totally agree with you on that. many of governor romney's foreign policy advisers including yourself worked for president george w. bush. do you think that if governor romney is elected president we're going to be seeing a similar kinds of policy as we saw in the bush years? >> i think we'll see governor romney's policies. it is not unusual when a new administration comes into place and if governor romney is lucky enough to be president romney, we'll have folks in the bush administration just like in this administration we have plenty of folks in the clinton administration. governor romney's stand is much closer to ronald reagan's, that's a peace through strength position. he believes in deterrence. in the reagan years although we had a strong militar
